Here at focus we recognise the value of good social work and the potential for positive and life changing impact on the lives of the people we support. We are committed to enabling you to develop your practice.
The AYSE process for newly qualified social workers aims to:-
The ASYE guidance is underpinned by the notion of continual assessment and focuses on the specialist areas of knowledge, values and skills relevant to the role. It provides an understanding of what a Social Worker should know, and do, by the end of their first year of employment.
You will be assigned a mentor and a coach, who you will work with on a regular basis to tailor an individual programme for your on-going development. Through careful selection of a varied case load underpinned by regular supervision, you will gain practical experience and theoretical knowledge which you will be able to use as evidence for your ASYE Portfolio.
You will also be offered peer support sessions which gives you the opportunity to meet, share and learn from each other and which also counts as part of your protected learning time.
